Bennett, Janice O.; Markle, Patricia Ann
The document offers suggestions for developing a Strucure of Intellect (SOI) program for gifted elementary students. An introductory chapter covers the definition of SOI, rationale for using the SOI model with gifted students, purpose of the guide, assessment of intellectual ability, preparation of the SOI prescription, classroom activities based on the SOI, organization and teaching strategies, and SOI tasks to be used in remedial reading. Also provided in this initial section are resources which include a list of teachers, references, SOI classification of educational materials, an outline of Erickson Elementary School lab materials, materials list for the SOI Abilities Workbook, and the SOI Institute list of materials and services. Subsequent chapters are color coded for five areas (cognition, memory, convergent production, divergent production, and evaluation) and usually include an introduction and sections with a glossary of pertinent SOI factor definitions; a list of commercially prepared materials; descriptions of activities; and task cards (which consist of mazes, puzzles, graphs, and other instructional materials).
